Currently I have the K04 installed on my ride. Currently have shittie software, but GIAC on the way. What is my best upgrade after the chip is installed? I currently am running K&N drop in and stock exhaust.

definately an exhaust!!! don't get a neuspeed, i hate mine. it screams at 5000rpms, not a good scream.

if you don't have a bpv, then get that too.

stock exhast with a k04 would be very restrictive

how much more power would a 2.5" exhaust have with a K04 and GIAC programming? I still have my std exhaust too.

approx 240hp. Get the exhaust and downpipe next, then high flow cat. The panel filter will work fine.

Anyone heard of GHL? I'm kinda looking at exhaust options now. I have a ***** FWD so my options are kinda limited.

from what i hear those are nice, along with techtonics tuning and milltek. the milltek is 2.75" piping, i'm thinking of upgrading to one of these puppies.

wow, i like the GHL. I have a FWD too with a remus. If the GHL fits the FWD my remus is going to go in the classifieds section[:D]

I didn't think they made a system for FWD.

http://www.ghlmotorsports.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=AA4-CB25&Category_Code=Audi-A4-M-97-01 Click here for a GHL clip (http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/r/c/rco118/PSEAC/cox/MVI_0077.avi)

(you might want to choose save as, its big)

This is how loud my GHL is with two resonators added. Its insanely light but there are some fitment problems at times. My main complaint was the fact that the tips stuck out about 5 inches from the rear valence and the hangers would heat up and slide, causing the tips to melt away parts of my valence. I had the tips cut at a shop and fixed the bracket problem with some c-clamps.

I really like my ABT exhaust.. its aggressive at low rpms but not too loud, at idle its quiet, but at high rpm's it screams.. love it! =D just another option..
